Affair Proofing Marriage

Catching up on FamilyLife Today podcasts: Listened to Ron and Nancy Anderson, who have written the book, Avoiding the Greener Grass Syndrome.

She was in a bad marriage, was unhappy, and began having an affair. Upon asking her dad for advice, he said,  "I didn't raise you to be happy, I raised you to behave."

After confessing the affair to her husband one night, together they called the man she was having an affair with and told him she would never see him again. She said to him, "I am choosing to love my husband, even though my feelings are otherwise."

Reminded me of the line in Fireproof "You've got to lead your heart." The heart is wicked, deceived, easily pulled after vile things. "He who trusts in his own heart is a fool..." Prov 28:26

Great message for today. You can listen at the following links:
